comment Can you run Powershell scripts with command line parameters in Robot?
Thanks that looks like it will do what I want....right now I only need to use 2 or 3 variables specifically but wanted to have an option to add more later on as needed.

comment Smoke testing by Dev team
We had a similar policy in the past, where after a release not only would Dev do the deploy to make sure the build worked but they would smoke test by checking areas they did not work on. That provided them valuable experience in other areas and also made sure no one had their blinders on for possible issues.

comment New to code reviews. How to approach from a software test engineer perspective?
Exactly, I have gone into reviews with this mindset, especially larger groups where I feel I have minimal input or impact. Otherwise, my position has been, if the Developer cannot explain to me simply what the code flow is through his code, he doesn't understand it enough to tell me that something might or might not be wrong. Asking "how does X happen in this function" is a good way to build up understand under the hood.

comment Scenario based Tester interview
@shicky Certainly someone could do that, but if they can do it and back it up with examples and a rational method, then its fine. If its rubbish, its rubbish that is hard to defend. I don't know about good, but if you are not clear on how to break out projects I'd suggest reading up on how to generate functional, regression and other types of tests that is far too expansive to go into an answer here. Remember its about explaining how YOU do it and being able to show/explain your method and process that's what these are really about.

comment Scenario based Tester interview
@shicky I've done the toaster thing, I have also asked the toaster, and I have been given a project I needed to create plans for at home and present during the interview. Don't worry so much about what I or others may do, work with what YOU know because you need to explain how you did it or would do it. Think of it as an example where you have the perfect set up to plan or test as you see fit, and speak to that.

comment How to test a toaster? (interview question)
I used to do this to gauge a person's ability to communicate to me what and how they would test, often I would glean some information on what type of tester they are due to where they would focus their answers. After blogging about it one time though, I found out that I'd been found out and so I left it off and basically started asking deeper questions about how someone did previous work and describing to me how they did what they did.

comment Soapui or Rest Service Testing? and where I can find good Soapui and rest service testing tutorials?
Doesn't it really depend on what path YOU want to go on and where you see your career going? My advice may not be the career path you want to choose.
